Saving Rafael / by Leslie Wilson
- London : Andersen Press, 2009
"In Berlin, Jenny Friedemann's Quaker family opposes Hitler, and they try to help their Jewish friends, even as they face vicious abuse from their Nazi neighbors and Jennys own pro-Hitler uncle. She has always been close with her Jewish friend, Rafael, and when his parents are deported to the camps, her family hides him in their house. Even as the Allies bomb their neighborhood, the teens fall for each other and begin to have sex. Then, Jenny is betrayed to the Gestapo and sent to Mauthausen concentration camp. She survives the camp, and she and Rafael escape to Sweden, but their happy reunion never denies the brutal extermination history or the complexity of the teens emotions."--Amazon.com.
